She teamed with colleague, Neil Pederson of Columbia Universitys Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and Baatarbileg Nachin, a professor at National University of Mongolia, and a squad of his undergraduate students before heading out into a remote Mongolian countryside in search of tell tale wood samples.They journeyed to a high-elevation site that other researchers had found to contain trees that were hundreds of years old. They found that the site had burned, which gave them valuable data on the fire cycle in the region.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Amy Hessl and other top speakers and celebrities.
